Ever wondered what a driving time-lapse at sunset looks like on 30A? Checkout our gopro video travelling from Rosemary Beach, through the towering palms in Alys, over the coastal dune lakes in Seagrove, and (of course) the little bit of traffic in Seaside -- and then on past Western Lake in Grayton Beach and finally into Blue Mountain Beach, Gulf Place, and Dune Allen Beach as the sunset nears the horizon and lights up the sky.

The place you could come to life exploring. The place where the world seemed to slow down and life was simple. When you think of THIS place you find your mind carried away with wonder and all of the sudden a few minutes have passed.

For many, THAT place is Seaside, Florida, a favorite thriving coastal community not far west of Panama City Beach.
